Oh my, it has been a while, but as so often times are really busy over here. I’ve worked on a bigger project that gave me a bit trouble, because I calculated and recalculated and was really
worried I might run out of yarn. In the end I didn’t take time for much else but finish it. Which I did yesterday and it was a close call with less than 1 gram of yarn to spare. So happy it’s
done, but unfortunately I can’t share pics yet.
Well, not all my knitting time was spent with said project, but a few other things got finished too. Socks for Ulli – and I admit these were hard work too, for the simple reason that I had to knit a pattern I had already knit twice before, my Paul the Penguin Socks. And that’s not very high on my list of things I like. I mean, there are so many other patterns, why repeat one? But Ulli mentioned more than once how much he loved the socks I gave away for Christmas, so he got his own pair…
and my 'reward' was that he modeled them in the penguin’s ‘habitat’. :) A small price to pay for new socks, don’t you think?
I also finished the second sleeve for one of my long term WIPs, which leaves me with the hardest part to attach them. Hm… we’ll see when I tackle that.
Oh, and for reasons unknown, since I am always complaining about my lack of knitting time, I started another big project: Persian Dreams. A beautiful blanket made up of hexagons in stranded knitting and the goal in our Ravelry group is to knit one hexagon per month. Sounds easy enough, but I was late right from the start and knit my January square only last week.
But I am so happy how it turned out. I really hope to keep it rolling.
